Miss Connecticut Erin Brady was named this year's Miss USA Sunday night during the annual pageant, held at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Brady, an accountant, received the crown from predecessor Nana Meriwether, who took over as Miss USA in December when 2012 winner Olivia Culpo was named Miss Universe.

Culpo's crowning in the global pageant left her Miss USA spot vacant and first runner-up Meriwether took over her duties as the ambassador for the organization.

Like past Miss USA winners, Erin will represent the U.S. in this year's Miss Universe pageant in Moscow this December. If she wins, Miss Alabama Mary Margaret McCord, this year's first runner-up, would take over the Miss USA title.
